I walked in the dining room
to find Marcos standing in front of my sewing table.
I went over to ask him what he was looking for,
but before I got any words out,
what it was he wanted.
He had my sewing scissors.
in his hands.
"What do you think you're doing with those?"
He looked at me as if it was the most normal thing in the world,
"I was just going to cut something outside."
I don't remember exactly what transpired next
except the scissors were returned to safety
and Tyler later said,
"I'm just glad the boy's still alive."
I don't think he'll make that mistake again.
